Hi all. I have recently bought a condo, and am looking into making most of the finished basement into a home theater. It really is the only place practical, space-wise. The problem is, access to the basement is limited by a 90 degree turn in the stairs, with full walls on all sides. No walk-out, miniscule windows (which actually would help with lighting concerns). I unfortunately don't have the exact width (won't have access to it yet for another month) of the stairway, but it seems standard. Washing machines, dryers, and freezers are currently in the basement, so I know that at least *some* large equipment is *fittable*. Needless to say, I'm concerned that my rear projection tv I intend to buy will fit! I'm interested in the Panasonic PT-56WXF95, but am also considering the Pioneer SD-532-HD5. 'Twould be a disaster to buy one and have it NOT fit through the stairs. Does anyone have similar experiences or problems? I've searched the web and came up mostly empty. One good idea I've seen is to build a "mock-up" of the set with 1" wood to the exact dimensions of the set, and see how (or IF) it would fit. I'm hoping that others here can give me some insight into this potential problem, as the test fit will have to wait for us to actually occupy the place, a long month away.
